Yes!!! I have reached the top of the design. 😀🎉👍. However, I still have loads to do.
My exam classes being on study leave has given a little more time at the weekend, but those exam scrips keep coming in. Now the light has gone, I’ll get some more papers marked, then I can hopefully work on the sky on my day off.
The turtle dove is finished
This year we decided on a pre lit pop up tree. I added some extra ribbon (like the more expensive version) but it still lacked some thing. I have been looking at the twelve days of Christmas felt decorations by Larissa Holland on Etsy & brought the pack of the first 3 ( this years offerings)
Partridge & pear (tree) are finished.
Back in August & September I had been working on different canvas stitches & a design from this picture
I have finally completed enough , to share with everyone. I have loads to do, as this piece is for my royal school of needlework certificate. Once I’ve finished the trees & sky, I have all the fancy top stitching to complete ( under the watchful eye of my tutors). I also have a border to do too, as I have lots of different stitches around the outside, to make a smooth finish around the outside, hence the line round the outside, rather than being set out with waste thread.
The leaves have been added, & now I need to work out the mounting bit. Oh & a small seed bead border.
Done a bit more to the cushion cover. I still need to track down some silver thread, that I’m rapidly running out of.
Canvas stitches, still working through them, I have now turned the frame round & started working on the other end, I have only done a couple to nothing much at that end yet.
My school planner is finished & I’ve been doing a fair amount of planning this week
Yes the school bags are out Luna is guarding them. Next week I’m in school every day ( I have training on my day off☹️). She will be watching at the window all next week for me to come home, the second week she won’t even bother to get up & see me off & by the end of September she will know my work pattern better than me.
